First, I was quoted at length in the following article in The Herald: “New code will help parents of children with special needs” – we call them “additional support needs” now, but no matter!
The pick of the quotes was, I suppose:
“Govan Law Centre is delighted to see these principles from Curriculum for Excellence explicitly applied to learners with additional support needs and, by their inclusion in the code, giving those entitlements a legal foundation which parents and young people will be able to rely upon.”
My friend, Kate Higgins, policy manager at for Scotland’s Disabled Children also gets a namecheck and quotes.
Then, there was the following from the new edition of The Legal 500 (UK):
“The education ranking includes only firms which act for academic institutions. For personal representation, the education law group of Govan Law Centre is recommended, in particular Iain Nisbet, who acts for parents and pupils in education law cases in courts across Scotland; ‘no other firm comes close’.”
I liked that.
